 Coleman Hell's Latest Track Takes On Mental Illness

By FYI Staff

Hit pop artist Coleman Hell has premiered "Manic," a new song and a video tied to coincide with Bell's Let's Talk Day (Jan. 31).


A press release explains that "the song is his most deeply personal work to date and speaks to Coleman’s ongoing struggle with mental health. He hopes to shed some light on something many people struggle with on a daily basis."

Describing "Manic," Hell says he initially wrote it for himself. "It was an attempt to articulate my emotions, but now I think I owe it to anyone else going through a similar situation to release it into the world. Hopefully, it will help validate the feelings of others and give them a new perspective.”

He acknowledges that the onset of depression in 2017 meant “I spent half that year in bed.” After realizing the need for professional help, he started therapy, withdrew himself from social media and spent the next six months working on himself. ‘Manic’ is meant to be "a realistic snapshot of how it feels to be affected by mental illness."

Hell is currently working on new music, with a sophomore album expected sometime in 2018.

His debut LP Summerland went gold, and his breakthrough single “2 Heads” was the most played song on Canadian radio in 2016. It went 4x Platinum in Canada, Gold in the US, and has exceeded over 100 million streams on Spotify.
